We were all left scratching our heads when Dave Chappelle abruptly abandoned his hit Comedy Central show, The Chappelle Show, and said that the show was "ruining his life." He became uncomfortable with how audiences were receiving his jokes and said that "people can't distinguish between what's real and fake." After more than 10 years, the comedian is slowly making his way back into the spotlight, performing at Radio City Music Hall and expressing interest in returning to television.

Chappelle recently hosted Saturday Night Live, the show's first episode following the election, along with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest. According to the live and same day ratings from Nielsen, Chappelle's SNL episode was the highest of the season for total viewers and adults 18-49 and the highest in that age range since 2013. It was his first time hosting the show.

Chappelle's last comedy special was 2004's Dave Chappelle: For What It's Worth, so this is a long-awaited event. We've reached out to Netflix for more info and will keep you posted as news rolls in.
